How to switch a theme WordPress

To change the appearance of your website you can install more themes and switch between them as you prefer.

  • Click on Appearance link on the main menu on the left. The Appearance page will show you all the themes installed and available on your website. The active theme is always the first on the top left corner.
  • You can customize your theme hovering over it and then clicking on the Customize button that appears. It will take you to the option page of that specific theme. Customizing pages might vary according to the theme you’re using.
  • Clicking on the theme image preview will open a lightbox with the theme info and a preview. From this window you can choose to Live Preview the theme or just to Activate it pressing the buttons at the bottom of the page.
  • If you click on Live Preview you’ll be taken to a preview of the theme on your site. On the left side you’ll have a column with option that will let you customize your theme. Once you’re satisfied with all the edits, you can click on Save & Activate to activate the customized theme you just prepared.
